I know that it tastes much healthier than the "prepackaged" deli meat. I LOVE "Boar's Head Ovengold Turkey" each thin slice is 1 ounce.


Which is just as processed as the rest of it...

I've had it plenty and know what it is. It's still processed and has high sodium...

If the roast beef i get is so high in sodium then i cant imagine how low your salt intake is. Dont be ignorant without fully researching the subject 80 mg of sodium is so minimal that your statement of high in sodium is laughable.

Whatever makes you feel better about yourself...I wasn't talking about "the roast beef you get"(which is incidentally the ONLY product they have that low...), now was I? I was making a blanket statement about their meats. Can you show me that ALL of their meats are equally low in sodium? Go on...please do, I'm positive it will make you feel better about yourself if you can. (by the way...the originally mentioned Ovengold Turkey...check that one out...do you consider 350mg low for 2 oz?)

Honestly...everything gives you cancer now days. I remember when Ketchup chips were said to give you cancer......

Anyway, they aren't necessarily healthy but every now and then won't kill you. I barely ever buy them (actually bought them first time today but more for the boyfriend than myself) I do prefer to just cook my own chicken or turkey or whatever. When I bought the however I did check the nutritional values and the ingredient list because as with everything else you can find a better out of the options in front of you.
